Phase 4: October - December 1999

The work is completed before the rainy season starts in October. Topping-out ceremonies for both children's homes. The symbols of "Sternstunden".are clearly visible on the front of the girls' home. We would never have come so far so fast without the benefit campaign of Bayerischen Rundfunk.
Finally, on 7 December: the opening ceremony for the two children's homes. Although they are over 70, Maria and Hermann Kreitmeir, the founder's parents, do not let themselves be put off by the long and arduous journey. They realise why their son is investing his savings and his energy here. And they become the first sponsors of Little Smile!
It is also necessary to make major repairs to the main house, which we acquired with the land, and to renovate it from top to bottom. There are three rooms for guests who visit Little Smile Village in order to experience it for themselves.
